Ladies of the Library
Series Book I
By Alexis Lusonne Montgomery
When the matriarchs of a small western town are determined to provide suitable marriage candidates for their sons, their solution is to build a library and hire a librarian.
Susan Benjamin has a year contract and, unbeknownst to her, a year to decide which Gemstone son to marry.
Escaping the scandal in her past, she is grateful to be accepted into the small community like family, but she’s afraid falling into an intimate relationship with the town’s reclusive rancher will create an even bigger scandal…one her heart won’t survive.
Carole Crispin loves everything about Christmas and makes celebrating the season a tradition. This year, though, she’s grieving the loss of her grandfather, who has willed her his High Mountain Ranch on the outskirts of Sweetwater Springs, Montana.
Carole’s despicable male cousins are furious she’s inherited everything. They devise a plan to take control of the ranch by forcing her into a shotgun wedding to one of them. Overhearing their scheming, she escapes. Lost in a snow storm, she finds shelter in a remote cabin.
Rancher Halloran James, desperate to avoid memories of a tragic Christmas that still haunts him, intends to hide out in an isolated cabin on the outskirts of his property until the holidays are past and all reminders put away.
When he reaches his sanctuary, to his shock, an elfin beauty has turned his hideaway into a Christmas wonderland. Hap is forced to revise his plans for the holidays when she proposes a marriage of convenience to save her inheritance. Seems he’ll be protecting Carole from greedy, dangerous cousins. But celebrating Christmas? Still not on his agenda.
Bride By Chocolate
A Sweet Seduction Novel
by Alexis Lusonne Montgomery
She's everything he's not looking for in a wife…
When not-so-sweet sabotage strikes Bebe Waterston’s gourmet chocolate factory, things start looking hopeless. But she’s not a quitter. After sacrificing her personal life to prove she can run the family business, she’ll do anything to save it—including accepting help from an unlikely source: San Francisco’s “Prince Charming” of high society.
Sam Sugarman’s on a mission to marry. And in Sam’s family, finding a wife follows a recipe that starts with a box of Waterston’s Chocolates. When the supply runs out right before Valentine’s Day, the savvy CFO steps in to solve the problem, and finds the cure for his sweet tooth in the spitfire redhead. But now his dilemma is two-fold: convince Bebe he isn’t the serial-dating playboy she believes him to be and keep her safe from the person menacing her and her business.
Thrown together as the danger escalates, the mismatched duo tangles in and out of the bedroom. With a benefit gala and the fast-approaching, day-of-love deadline, they’ll need more than the gold-foil delicacies destined for a bride by chocolate.
